EFFECT STARTS ARGUMENT Ike's Support of Shivers Invites Test of Popularity WASHINGTON UB President Eisenhower appears to have in- vited a test of his political popu- larity in Texas that could rever- berate in the fall campaign for control of Congress. The President's unusual action yesterday in endorsing Gov. Allan Shivers, Texas Democrat who is bidding :for a renomination that is normally equivalent to re-election, may make Shivers' connection with the President -one ot the chief issues in an Aug. 28 runoff primary. Texas Democrats in Washington who. asked not to be named dis- -agreed -about the possible effect of Eisenhower's news conference 'statement that Shivers has made a good governor. Some thought-it might rebound to the benefit of Ralph Yarborough of Austin. Yarborough ran PLEDGES DELINQUENT C-C to Hire Attorney To Collect AFB Fund votes behind Shivers in the firsl primary last Saturday. Because of votes for other candidates, neithei major rival polled a majority, so a runoff is necessary. Other Texans said they believe Sisenhower is just.as popular in heir state as'he was when he carried it by votes in 1952 and that his public praise will help Shivers. Shivers, who backed Eisenhower n the 1952 presidential race and las maintained close relations with he President, has been under fire jn Texas in connection with a per- sonal land deal and an investiga- ion of insurance companies. Texans generally said these mat- the action of former Vice. President John Garner in criticizing a third elective term have been more comoel- ing than any issue of party regu- larity in Shivers' slide from the 2-1 vote margin he rolled up over Yarborough in 1952. Yarborough iad support this year of most Democrats who call themselves iberals. Although Eisenhower disclaimed Republican party interest in the outcome of the Shivers-Yarborough runoff, he said he likes and ad mires Shivers, thinks, he has beet a good governor and was please that Shivers bad supported him.in 1952: Board of Directors of the Abi- lene Chamber of Commerce voted Thursday morning to employ the services of an attorney to help col- lect delinquent Air Force Base pledges.
